Platinum Blonde

1931 NR

Frank Capra directed this 1931 screwball comedy about a hard-nosed newspaper reporter, Stew (Robert Williams), who, after marrying heiress Ann Schuyler (Jean Harlow), must find a way to adjust to high society. After finding it stifling, he sets about writing a play with a female colleague, Gallagher (Loretta Young), who promptly falls for Stew. Hijinks and witty repartee move faster than breaking copy as the two women vie for Stew's affections.
